All interested people are invited to a special webinar organized by the Gender-Based Violence Area of Responsibility (GBV AoR) in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) entitled, "How Climate Change Fuels Gender-Based Violence: Zooming in on tools and data for gender-responsive early warning systems and effective GBV early action interventions."

The event takes place on 4 May 2021 as part of the Humanitarian Networks Partnerships Week (which runs from 19 April to 7 May 2021).

The recently published GBV AoR Help Desk learning brief on Climate Change and Gender-based violence: What are the risks? will be presented at the event. The brief highlights the links between gender-based violence and climate change, how GBV risks are exacerbated by different types of climate hazards, and how existing approaches to climate change mitigation may affect women and girls.

The session aims to:

  • Expound on how gender-based violence (GBV) risks, including harmful practices, are exacerbated by different types of climate hazards.
  • Understand how the current climate-change related frameworks or approaches within the humanitarian system support GBV prevention, mitigation and response efforts.
  • Understand protection and GBV-related concerns for early warning, impact projections and anticipatory action.
  • Share field-level experience on effective intervention models on anticipatory action through inter-agency GBV coordination mechanisms
  • Engage other clusters to implement GBV risk mitigation measures in relation to their preparedness and early action planning.
